Thanks. I started Modding it right away and has taken me a long time to get this far. I plan my next mods ahead of time and start putting money aside til I can get what I'm after.

Don't I know it. It's about to get even harder for me. With any luck I'll be purchasing a house in the next couple weeks and that will take what extra money have for modding away. That's why I'm trying to get so much done while I can.

Pretty easy. You have to remove the airbag by inserting something into the little holes behind it til it releases. I used a pocket flat head driver. Then there 2 T10 or 15 screws, 1 each.

alright, i was just wondering how i was going to Black out the whole chromed key hole on the trunk.
Did you just Plasti-dip it?
i was worried about it getting it in the key hole, but totally forgot the fact that there's that little flap you have to push in.
I took the cylinder out and sprayed it with flat black spray paint called trim black.

That sucks. All I need is the money for it and its done. That and suspension :D
Yeah it really sucks. Getting the money is the hardest part of this fun and I had it put aside. Knowing that I had the money and couldn't get it really messed me up. What suspension? You still looking to bag it?

Sounds a lot like my ex girlfriend when I used to mention wanting to turbocharge a car or spend a few grand on modifying one.. Most women don't understand our desires of fast cars. I had been dreaming of buying a 2004 impala and turbocharging it, but eventually changed my mind and ended up buying an 08 G6 GT. I'm much happier with this choice of course. In the end, as far as turbocharging or supercharging a car that isn't designed for insane amounts of power, it makes more sense not to go through with either as you WILL need a different transmission, and it's only a matter of time. Either option is extremely expensive, and as with any FWD application, traction will be an issue. Believe it or not your wife has the right idea. Save your money to eventually buy a much faster car.
Hahaha says the one who started the comment about my car needing to be faster. Lmao. But you are right. The wife and I have agreed that I can mod so long as its not the engine. Much safer in the long run.
And that's when I made my signature read the way it does.
